A is best. We need singular subject-verb agreement with singular form "interest". B and C are out.
D) wow, very wordy for something that could be simplified to what A is
E) I don't like comma between the adverb and "does"

A should be it ( 39 s)

Realised from earlier explanation from Paul that an independent clause should be followed by a conjugation - this eliminates E

for eliminating the rest of the options, I concur with Paul on the explanations

Re: SC- as do Vs. as does [#permalink] New post 10 Jul 2004, 23:31
Clearly, A. Sometimes, it helps to break the sentence into two parts.

The aristocratic values[plural] place [correct subject-verb agreement] her within the French... tradition. (do)

Her passionate interest [singular] places [correct subject-verb agreement] her within the French... tradition. (does)

Bhai, if you still haven't got what you need, read this:

Doesn't, does not, or does is used with the third person singular--words like he, she, and it.

Don't, do not, or do is used for other subjects.

Incorrect: It don't matter anymore.
Correct: It doesn't matter anymore.

Incorrect: Grandfather don't see too well.
Correct: Grandfather doesn't see too well.
Correct: His glasses don't help him much.
